We tried to do the same for Prince Henry but, apart from great interest,
the necessary cash
(after my initial contribution of £10,000) did not materialise.
Bristol sent a replica of the Cabot ship last year (although there is no
proof that he ever landed in the New World).
Five years earlier three Viking ships left Bergen. I filmed them arriving
in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They were
escorted by a lot of local yachts so, in the film, it looks as if a great
armada was arriving. I use this to good effect
in my film on Prince Henry's voyage.
